if Hanrahan is out for awhile, and Bailey is injury prone, then I would say Tazawa has a better chance at getting more saves than Bell. Putz it looks like wont be having surgery, plus Gibson said Bell gets the first chance at replacing Putz while he is on the DL, but there is still Hernandez.

Tazawa is the better pitcher, I like Bell's odds of keeping the job more.

People seem to be punishing Bell extravagantly for one bad year. Previous to that he was set and forget.

Yeah I think Bell could have a lot of value from here on out. His peripherals are great this year, even better than anything he ever did in SD, although it's only 15 games. Who knows how long Putz will be out? Anything UCL related is a huge red flag.

Bell will blow his 1st save here, will take a few more to lose the job though.

Edit: I posted this before I knew Nix was going to PH, I take it back now~.

Jared Burton next in line in Minnesota? Perkins experience some "tightness".

Burton definitely worth a speculative add. This news hasn't seen the front page of Rotoworld so your league mates might not know about it.

Minnesota Twins RP Glen Perkins (side) is dealing with tightness in his left side, and he's unlikely to be available to pitch Friday, May 10.

Fantasy Tip: Jared Burton is likely next in line for save opportunities tonight or if Perkins were to miss more time with this injury. If you're desperate for saves in a cavernous league and you have the roster flexibility, jump on Burton now.

Also:

Closer Glen Perkins reported some tightness in his left side and was unavailable for Friday's game against the Orioles. Antony said Perkins felt discomfort when pitching against Red Sox right fielder Shane Victorino in the ninth inning of Thursday's 5-3 win. Perkins was still able to throw a scoreless ninth with two strikeouts to pick up his eighth save in as many chances.

Any speculative save streamers for todays games? Nathan, Cishek, Frieri, Wilhelmsen are all candidates to be sat today in lieux of the streamer. Any thoughts?
